Restoring the Wild Woman Archetype
& ReForesting the Soul
April 24nd to April 28th, 2013
Five days and four nights
New Mexico Gila Wilderness
Gathering in the heart of one of the last wild lands in North America, join other women hungry to remember and re-empower themselves as we live 5 Days on wild land, facing our fears, doubts, survival issues and shame and sexuality.
Marvelous and uniquely crafted the body of woman is a
sacred vessel, home to the divine spirit in creation.
- For Women ages 18 and up
- For women who have ever felt judgment about their bodies
- For women who have ever used food to stuff or numb their feelings
- Intimacy and sexuality
- Freeing the wild woman archetype
- Eating shadow
- Celebration of life
When inward tenderness
Finds the secret hurt
Pain itself will crack the rock And ah! Let the soul emerge.
Well behaved women seldom make history.
Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
The Five Days will Cover
What is hunger really about?
Letting go of judgment
Bodies never lie
Emotional and spiritual reclamation
Inner and outer voices
Meeting the wild within and on the land
Plants as teachers and allies
Hidden sources of power, passion and creativity
The Fruitful Darkness:
Shame * Guilt * Fear
We will learn plants for healing and eating as we eat the wild and begin our personal ecological reclamation..
We will create a new relationship with our bodies as we write new chapters for our lives.
Explore ancient ways of listening to nature and our own body. Through deep Earth Wisdom, ceremony, inner council and outer guidance we will transform our relationships with food and our bodies.
We will immerse ourselves in the wilderness through ceremonies of the Sacred Pipe, experiential exercises,
and meditations and working with the spirits of the land on the body of Grandmother Earth.
The Wild Woman archetype lives inside each of us. Enrolling in this program, you are honoring the call that she has sent up from deep inside. You give her permission to be alive and outloud in the world.
And did you get what
You wanted from this life?
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
Beloved by the Earth
